Boy Scout Makes $100 Donation to Sparta Education Foundation
Maierle is a Boy Scout in Troop 150 which operates out of the Sparta Methodist Church. In August he completed a beautification project outside the board of Education Office at the Mohawk Avenue School.
After collecting donations for the materials needed to complete his project, Maierle had some money left over which he decided to donate. Maierle, a senior at Sparta High School, is on target to reach the rank of Eagle Scout this spring. He is planing on going to college in Florida to study nursing. Maierle is currently captain of the Sparta High School Ski Team, a position he has held for the last two years. He has also been a ski instructor at Hidden Valley and volunteered at the 2013 Winter Special Olympics. Maierle also participated in tennis and lacrosse teams at Sparta, volunteered in Pass It Along and has been on the honor roll all four years of high school. He is a Source of Strength mentor and a PDP leader at Sparta High School, and has been a volunteer cadet EMT for the Sparta Ambulance Squad.
"The Sparta Education Foundation is proud to see young leaders like Brad grow into philanthropic givers," said Don Cutshall, president of the Sparta Education Foundation. "He has demonstrated selflessness in both his generous donation to our organization and the activities he is involved with at Sparta High School and with Troop 150. We are lucky to have students like Brad representing our town, and we are so grateful that he chose to support the mission of the SEF."
The Sparta Education Fondation has awarded more than $454,000 in grants to all five of Sparta's public schools since 2007. The Foundation is an independent non-profit organization whose mission is to engage the entire community in philanthropic giving that strengthens the public schools, supports teachers and inspires students.
